Lil’ Lady Bugs

For this project you will require the following items:

  • Craft Workshop Hot Glue Gun
  • Craft Workshop Moving Eyes – Small
  • Craft Workshop Pom Pom – Large white/black
  • Craft Workshop Chenille Stem Black
  • Red paint
  • Paint brush
  • Black marker pen/vivid
  • Empty egg carton
  • Scissors

Step 1.
Cut out the bottom of an egg carton to make the lady bugs body. Make sure the bottom edge is flat, and then paint the body in red and set aside to dry.
Step 2.
Prepare your antennae while the paint is drying by cutting the black chenille stem into two small lengths approximately 5cm to 6cm and bend to shape.
Step 3.
Using a hot glue gun (be careful not to burn yourself), glue the moving eyes and chenille stem antennae on top of a large pom pom, to create a lady bugs head. Position the eyes together and antennae pieces on the back of the head.
Step 4.
Once the red paint is dried on the body, glue the back of the head on to the body, positioning the antennae to stand up.
Step 5.

Draw small black spots on your lady bug and colour in.
